scott walker recall election. right now the race is very tight. all four men on the ticket, obama, biden, ryan and romney are in wisconsin because it is that tight. and if wisconsin goes for mitt romney, that will be a shocking development. republicans lost the state by 14 points four years ago. >> geraldo: ohio. everyone is talking about the buckeye state. what about ohio, scott? >> ohio is very close. showing it tied right now. that is a state again where the democrats actually think they had the edge on the ground. almost all of the polling has shown anything from a tie to a slight obama lead. this is a state that democrats are very confident they can hang on to. the president really needs to win both ohio and wisconsin if he wants to keep his job. romney needs to win one of those two. >> geraldo: iowa? >> iowa, another tie state. this this midwest that is become the pattern. the des moines register came out and for the first time in decades endorsed the republican candidate. why? the economy is the key issue. and in all of these states what we are starting to see is voters are

brought the obama are going to come out of the four caller counties even. when you look at what happened in montgomery county four years ago, barack obama came out of chester county up about 20,000 votes. you will certainly see some tightening this time, but you will see the president come out of the five county area will for at least a 600,000 vote margin, which will carry him through the rest of the state. i am looking at montgomery county, and if i may, i could agree that chester county is a bellwether. we have a strong democratic team. i think the president will do well in the southeast. as the chairman and knowledge, the southeast is where it is at. people like mitt romney who are will not play here in the moderate area of pennsylvania. we know how to evaluate candidates and i think people will reject mitt romney and tom smith. host: let's go to derry. caller: i would like the guests to address the catholic vote. someone mentioned the extremism has had some extreme positions on the left. guest: whenever barack obama tells the catholic church that they must can see to what the nation

obama down by four points. these numbers are moving in similar fashion across most of the states, with one big exception, ohio. in a high of the numbers show that it is 48-48. there is great enthusiasm from republican voters across the country. the democrats appear to have a stronger ground game and we are seeing that especially in ohio. before we get into all of that, we have two guests and they've both say they have said things they regret they have informed me that is not accurate. governor rendell is someone who speaks his mind freely on nbc and obviously served as governor of the great state of pennsylvania. i want to start by asking them about their home states. can mitt romney win? >> i would say yes the pennsylvania is in play. and i would say that it is probably the best bellwether of what happened over the last three weeks. the their campaign is particularly active in a pennsylvania. they have not been running many television ads because most campaigns thought it was going to be in the obama camp and felt that an expensive state like pennsylvania, one, four republicans, which

you want a glimpse of what four more years of obama will look like? earlier this week the president released a pamp let. what to expect if he were to win. he touts economic patriotism. that is a phrase he's used on the campaign trail for a while. >> it is time for a new economic ta patriotism. rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong and thriving middle class. >> i get it about the class. but if we hit people with more tax people who are work maybe doing pretty well and somehow it is more patriotic to pay more taxes, i love what arthur godfrey said. he was proud to be a tax paying american and he could be just as proud for half of the money. it is not a matter of patriotism for the government to take more and more of what we earn and redistribute it not so much to people who are absolutely desperate and in need. but just to people who kind of like to have what somebody else had. there is no patriotism in that. it is working hard and not expecting our government to do something for us and expecting us to do something for our government. there was a democrat

to 12 years ago, i'm not so sure. chris: ok. >> i agree with that. if at any point obama had said here's what we're going to do and it's really exciting, over the next four years we started doing this thing and now we have the largest wind farm in the world in oregon, we're going to have another one in nevada. if he had just come with that kind of -- chris: big question. but paul krugman in "the new york times" on friday said he's afraid to do that. because he will be hit again with big spending and more deficits if he proposes anything. >> and playing the republicans' game. chris: ok. let's look at what could be the key to everything. ohio. and you've written about it. every winning republican has carried ohio. and joe, your magazine, "time" magazine has a big spread on it this week. why hoeup will decide the election -- ohio will decide the election and your ohio poll has obama up five points. the gender gap is big in ohio. obama up in 19 points among women. and another fascinating thing obama gets 43% of the wheat vote, higher than in most states. is it all about the auto bailo
